Repo Questions and Answers

Keywords that People Use When Searching for Repo Information

Below is a two week sampling of the keywords that people entered into search engines to find some of my repo pages. Some of the keywords are hilarious, some are rather sad, some illustrate higher intelligence, and some are, well, wow-bizarre. I commented on each key-phrase to the right, separated by a dash ( — ). I listed my favorites at the top of the list so that if you don't have time to read them all you can at least see the ones that I feel are best. I had so much fun with this that I may look through previous months' keywords and list the ones that I find to be the funniest, most popular, or ask the best questions.

Please use your browser's 'find' feature to look for specific terms (press the ctrl key and F at the same time). The spelling is usually pretty poor in most of the keyword phrases, so you may not easily find all pertinent phrases without reading them all. After reading over the phrases I temporarily lost the ability to spell correctly too, so be forewarned, crazy human behavior rubs off on everyone!

#1: repossion is a fellowny — This one is my favorite! Hey, my English has always been poor (I am from Texas after all), and I have no problem whatsoever with anyone being English-challenged; but I simply love the innocence of the spelling! Humor and compassion at the same time, what a marvelous emotion! But the answer to the apparent question is no, having a car or boat repossessed is not a felony unless the previous owner damages or hides the vehicle.

#2: how to become a car repo man — All of the words were spelled and arranged correctly; impressive! This guy will make a good repo man.

#3: how to stop a repo — Pay the car payment! Seriously though, if the repo man is about to take your car, then let him. Give him the keys, be polite, apologize for the problem, and you can get the car back later after you have caught-up on payments. No car is more valuable than your health, so let the car go.

#4: how much does a repo man make a year — Some repo men might make around $250k a year, many lose money due to too much overhead, and some might make around $10k-$20k a year. I'm betting that most repo men quickly give up and go get a day job.

#5: how do repo people act — LOL! Sorry about that, but I just had to laugh at my own memories of having met different repo men. Repo men are humans, and all humans are nuts, so therefore all repo men are nuts. But seriously, there are good ones and bad ones, and a lot of their behavior will be dictated by how the person behaves from whom the car is being repoed. If you want a polite repo man, then you be polite first.

#6: sitting in your car during reposession — LOL! Don't! Men in blue uniforms and red lights on top of their cars will soon remove you from the car and introduce you to your new bunk buddies!

#7: how many car payments can you miss before they can legally take the car out of your possession — None. Seriously, read the fine print on your loan paper, if the lender so much as pretends to suspect that you will not make all payments then it is legal for the lender to repo the car, even if it is one second after you paid the down-payment or one second before you make the last payment. Car loans are insanely in favor of the lender.

#8: do u have to have a license to be a repo man in missouri — U shure do I bet u.

(Added April 5, 2013): The amazing thing to me is that this website gets so much traffic. I'm thinking that I am in the wrong business, I should move to a large city and be a repo man. If this site is so popular, then the repo business must be booming.

#9: (added April 5, 2013): hide my car and report it stolen to avoid reposetion — Wow, the person is planning several first degree felonies and putting his/her plans online too. Most people do not know that the prisons are filled with individuals who think like that.

#10: (added April 5, 2013): can a car company repo your for non payment of a down payment — LOL! Yes.

#11: (added April 5, 2013): if you burn a car do the repo still get money — If the repo man tows the car away, yes, s/he still gets paid regardless of whether it is being towed for the lender, the junk yard, or for the police who arrested you.

#12: (added April 5, 2013): repo car from other than your billing address — A sizable number of people invent ideas to excuse-away reality. The individuals somehow believe that the invented excuses become real rules of conduct that other people must follow. Repo men, police, and everyone else that has to deal with the public are constantly faced with similar craziness.

It could still be moral and just, but legalities are not always concerned with what is fair. Generally, if a company or person has not paid money to the government for a license, then it's illegal to do it (including flushing the toilet, living in a house, eating food, all that stuff).

how to get a repo license in pa — Good question, and I'm suggesting that the person begin by spending days telephoning and visiting state agencies to find which agency handles the licensing.

can a repo man move another car to get to the car in texas — Maybe, although maybe it would be unacceptable to open another vehicle to access the transmission shifter or steering wheel.

how long will a repo man stay outside your house — As long as it takes, but generally around fifteen to thirty minutes to hook up and go. However, the question appears to suggest that a repo man is parked in the street and waiting for the car to show, which in that case the repo man might be there for days, and I'm going to tell you right now that if he is that interested in your car then after he leaves there will be someone else in a different vehicle watching the house 24/7. Give the poor guy the car keys and let him go home for dinner and sleep!

State governments get angry if a business hasn't paid money for the privilege to work and travel in that state.

texas state vehicle repo laws — The phrase found a useful site here.
